    Another happy vote for Allure Blanche...great scent for spring/summer warm days
    "I love fragrances because they provide a sheer endless variety: there is a scent for every occasion, mood or feeling. Standing before my collection in the morning matching a perfume to my needs is one of the most enjoyable things in my day". I don't want to miss that

    Current Top 12 Spring: | Chanel Allure Blanche | Guerlain Homme Intense |
    Dior Fahrenheit | Givenchy pour Homme | Carolina Herrera for Men | Narciso Rodriguez Him | T. Mugler A*Men Sunessence | Trussardi Inside | C. Herrera Chic | Azzaro PH | M. Kors Michael for Men | Pal Zileri Sartoriale |

    Gucci Pour Homme II should do it.

    Chanel Allure Sport, the tonka in it gives it a nice vanilla feel.

    Guerlain Heritage & Rochas Man, although I don't think they're fit for the summer heat.

    +1 for $100-125 can't go wrong. Maybe something from the ADP range? Lime, Basil & Mandarin from Jo Malone?

    Interestingly, many of the notes you've listed for your Summer scent are commonly used for scents that people call "Winter scents." Though, of course, that's just a general sense. These categories are just guideposts.

    My current summer scent is Eau d'Hadrien, but I don't think that fits your note preferences. Maybe Eau Duelle?

    Eau des Baux, mentioned above, is a nice, inexpensive scent. I bought it a few weeks ago and am interested to see how often it calls to me this Summer.
    Current Top Five:

    1. Creed Green Irish Tweed
    2. Tom Ford Neroli Portofino
    3. Hermes Concentre d'Orange Verte
    4. Bond No. 9 New Haarlem
    5. Creed Original Vetiver

    HM by Hanae Mori - Great compromise between a fresh lemon and sweet vanilla. Works in warm (though perhaps not HOT) weather

    Not sure if this meets your requirements, but I recently got Allure Homme Sport, and am absolutely loving it. Great scent and long lasting.

    Default Re: Need a summer signature scent

    +1 to Chanel Allure Homme Sport Eau Extreme or L'occitane Eau de Baux although both might be a bit cloying in the summer heat. My suggestion for something light on wood, perfect for summer would be Bang Bang by Marc Jacobs. Stupid name, weird bottle but it's a nice wood scent for summer in particular. Not cloying by any means.

    Eau de Baux is a vapor cloud in heat. It is way too overpowering when temps exceed 80F.

    CKOne Shock ph is a lighter alternative and has some common elements. Spicebomb can also get out of hand in heat.
